Komakino . left this review about The Craft Beer Shop

A bottleshop-cum-micropub located in a parade of five small units next to Chalfont & Latimer train station. This is a square single room with bottles of shelves, a bottle fridge in the middle, and gins, wines and growlers (also on shelves) against the left-hand wall. An entrance-facing bar and some limited seating to the right (there is some improvised seating on the pavement out front if / when the weather is clement). There's also a tiny courtyard out back which can be utilised, again, if and when the weather is clement. The interior has kind of been made out in wood shack chic with horizontal 'crate'-style slats forming the walling and a fake flagstone floor. Pump clips adorn the right-hand wall and ceiling and empty growler bottle hang from the ceiling above the entrance. A token dartboard also hangs from the right-hand wall but appears to be no more than decoration. Beers were a mixture of cask and keg, comprising Beavertown Lupulouid, Bad Seed Chocka Hop, Signature Brew Safe Mode, Almasty DDA IPA, Thornbridge Crackendale, New Wharf Session IPA and a couple of ciders in Millwhites Hedge Layer and Rioja Cask Cider (the New Wharf, Ilkley and Thornbridge were all very good). A mix of ages on an early Friday afternoon which is always good, albeit a little on the boisterous side - perhaps something to do with the closure of the nearby Sugarloaf Inn at the time. Signs for upcoming events including gin tasting and gluten-free beer taster evenings proves they're keeping themselves busy, but this didn't quite hit the spot for me on this visit - loud music played from an unseen portable device out back which deviated from the ambiance they are trying to create - but an afternoon visit might sway my rating in a more favourable manner.
